Fri Dec 14, I don’t know what RAID controller Gigabyte has used, nor whether it’s connected via PCI or PCIe even chips on the motherboard have to use a bus of some sort to connect to the chipset , but the Intel controller is a known quantity, more or less guaranteed to be supported by every flavour of OS available, and because it’s integrated into the chipset, it’s not restricted by bandwidth or latency on the PCI or PCIe bus, so may give you slightly higher transfer rates than the Gigabyte especially if the latter is connected to the chipset using the PCI bus. Will it recognize the existing mirror?

I do not remember how much faster it was when I tested them, but enough to not make me think twice about which to use for my RAID setup. Workstation’, you may want to enter the name in quotes. I don’t know about Vista, that’s a mess to deal with in my opinion but in order to get my SATA2 drive to boot up it was really easy after all my problems related to a different issue. Don’t know if their tech support will!

Skip the guide; download nLite and let it manage all that crap for you. But then I also found this webpage and gleaned additional insight before settling on this webpage to integrate the needed drivers into the slipstreamed cd.

I bought 4 of those drives for that price in Houston.

I’ll be using it tomorrow T I did it with quotes and tried it again– it still drops out of automatic setup with the same error, so that’s not it. I didn’t, and it caused the automatic install to drop out of the process for me to enter a valid computer name. rakd

The silkscreening on the motherboard PCB might offer more of a clue. Only thing i can get it to read is the cd drives off the IDE cable.

I’m going to give Pastek a bump – and diverge for a second toi close a loop.
